Recognized consistently for his energy and natural resources expertise by both Chambers and Legal 500, multilingual international corporate partner Eric Gilioli’s practice spans globally, with a particular focus in the United States, Central Asia and Eastern Europe. In addition to a sharp focus on oil and gas negotiations, his repertoire of experience includes infrastructure projects, cross-border M&A, corporate reorganizations, and commercial contracts.
Eric Gilioli has worked on major infrastructure projects in a variety of countries, including in the former Soviet Union and Eastern Europe. A substantial part of his practice is centered on Kazakhstan, where he advises the Ministry of Energy of Kazakhstan, PSA LLC and KazMunayGas, on corporate and contentious matters.
For over ten years, Mr. Gilioli has been representing the interests of the Republic of Kazakhstan in multi-billion dollar transactional and contentious matters relating to the giant Kashagan and Karachaganak oil and gas fields. He led the Curtis team that helped the Republic secure a US$1.9 billion settlement of a six-year dispute over the sharing of profits from the Karachaganak oil and gas field, resulting in the largest payment ever to the Republic in settlement of an arbitral dispute. He previously helped to renegotiate the production-sharing agreement relating to the Karachaganak oil and gas field and the transfer of a 10% share in the project to the national oil company of Kazakhstan. He also represented the national oil company of Kazakhstan in the renegotiation of the production-sharing agreement relating to the Kashagan oil field, as well as the sale of a 49% interest in the “N” Block exploration and production contract to two international oil companies.
Mr. Gilioli has worked on transactions relating to the transportation of oil and gas in Central Asia, and on a number of infrastructure projects in Kosovo, including the reorganization of the national post and telecommunications provider, as well as on oil and gas transactions in countries including Afghanistan, Ghana, Gabon, Liberia and Mexico.
Mr. Gilioli has significant experience of the life sciences industry, representing world leaders in the supply of research and diagnostic equipment and consumables, as well as leading pharmaceutical manufacturers. He has broad experience of the negotiating and drafting of stock and asset purchase agreements, strategic alliances, research and development collaborations and intellectual property licenses in the life sciences and pharmaceutical fields.
Mr. Gilioli represents a range of Italian businesses active in the industrial equipment, furniture, food and fashion sectors. He has represented numerous Italian companies acquiring or forming companies in the United States and entering into joint venture, shareholder and employment agreements, as well as manufacturing, distribution, sales representative and commercial sales agreements.
He has spoken at seminars on corporate governance and compliance matters in the United States, Italy and Eastern Europe. Furthermore, he is a recipient of the Medal for Distinguished Labor, awarded by the President of the Republic of Kazakhstan.
He has been consistently ranked as a leading lawyer by Chambers Global for energy & natural resources expertise in both the U.S. and Kazakhstan.
